Paragangliomas originating from the retroperitoneum are generally functional. 40-50% of them are malignant and they generally have a slow progression. Surgical resection and radiotherapy are the preferred methods for the local treatment of these tumors. A case with a tumor localized in the retroperitoneal space that was totally resected by surgical method was evaluated.
